Default Local Brewpub getting screwed...

Neigbor being a total tool over a local brewpub opening and not even willing to discuss anything:

Hopefully they can resolve it and move on.

That sucks. What's the neighbors gripe regarding parking?

I guess their concern is a lack of space for parking and will cause more traffic in the area but at least sack up and discuss the issue instead of causing issues then hiding behind your door.

That's lame.

a business might generate traffic? dear god, no. whatever are they thinking, trying to live the American Dream and all?

/sarcasm.

best of luck to the owners. --The brewpub owners, not the gripey house owners.

Don't know, nobody in their sane mind would drive to the pub over here (well, specially not back from it! )

The neighbors won't open their door? If they don't open their door then they don't have customers and if they don't have customers why do they need parking?

Edit: I watched the video and it appears to be in a residential area. In CA that wouldn't fly no matter what the business was, you can't have a bunch of customers showing up in a residential area.

That makes me grind my damned teeth... If I was in that area I would be going to all of those neighbors myself and giving them a piece of my mind

I am all for more businesses opening up (my paycheck depends on them)
But I also think that it appears to be in a residential area if not in a remodeled house. I would have to agree with the neighbors if it is in a neighborhood. Last thing I would want the house across the street open up as a bar with just a driveway for parking. Zoning would be the first thing I would think a business owner would look at.

I am not downplaying his ambition. Just think they put the cart before the horse. Some of us may be a bit bias because the particular business he is trying to run. Would you think the same if a neighbor opened a paint store?

Edit: I googled mapped it. I am not sure the town has any planed zoning. They have homes, dance studio and a funeral home as neighbors. Odd set up. His property only has two parking places. They would have to share the lot behind for additional parking. That may be the issue at hand.
